Deepika Padukone has got something to do with Kangana Ranaut’s upcoming movie. But, hold your horses...it’s not what you’re thinking! Not Deepika but one of her ex-boyfriends is all set to make a debut with Manikarnika, the film based on The Queen of Jhansi.
Reports suggest that Deepika’s ex, Nihaar Pandya, who she was dating during her
struggling days, is a part of Kangana’s film. According to mid-day, Nihaar will
play Bajirao II in Zee Studios' Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. For those who don’t know,
Nihaar played a cameo in Salman Khan’s Marigold in 2007. However, that wasn’t a
full-fledged role. It now looks like, the gates of Bollywood have finally been
opened for him.
Talking about Nihaar and Deepika’s history, the duo apparently was living-in when Dippy shifted from Bengaluru to Mumbai during her initial days in Bollywood. She bagged Om Shaanti Om opposite Shah Rukh and Nihaar was left behind.
Manikarnika is a biographical film about the life of Rani Laxmi Bai. The film also stars Sushant Singh Rajput’s ex-girlfriend, Ankita Lokhande and is scheduled for release on April 27, 2018.
